    Easy to use and create videos, step-by-step video creation, flexibility to create videos from scratch, regularly updated.


    It would be nice to have the ability to add an additional audio track (for background music) and be able to fade audio (in and out).

    I've been using Headliner for a couple of months now and have enjoyed using this unique video creation tool. I love the different types of audiograms as well as animated text videos that you can create with Headliner. I've created several videos myself and am happy to see regular updates that are being made.

    Also, it's great to see that the Headliner team has been receptive to suggestions that I've made to improve the Headliner app even more. I've already seen many new updates that have gone into this video app since I started using the app.

    It's especially great for podcasters, radio stations, music artists as well as for creating videos for social media. And best of all, it's completely free...thanks Headliner Team for an awesome video creation tool!

    P.S: Here is my personal video review on the Headliner app based on my experience using it so far.

    Best way to generate transcripts for voice overs - great time saver!


    None. Couldn't find any!

    Fantastic! This is very timely for us. We have just created 20 explainer videos for Octoboard and were giving them to voice over artists. I was trying to figure out how to make sure the artist gets the timing just right and how to count the number of words in each video. Now we have a perfect solution - simply loading our videos to Headliner, spelling out the texts and get immediate transcription - right on time! Thanks guys!

Great application you have there! I'm totally intrigued by it! Will definitely give it a go, just a question, how many languages does Headliner support or what future languages you are expanding on? Will definitely love if it can support more languages or maybe even translation into other languages from one!

@jmtiong it'd be cool to do a translation feature too - some users have been doing that manually now, using google translate and then copy and pasting the translation in.

@oliver_wellington thanks for the list! Ohh I see but I can't wait for it to have a translation feature! :D

@jmtiong @oliver_wellington Heya, Oliver! Congrats on the launch! I think some would be awesome to add an option for professional translation too. For example, if you have users who do captions for their professional videos I think Google Translate is not always enough, so it would be cool if they could hire professional freelance translators from your app directly. That way your customers could an additional service without leaving the app and you could also earn a commission on providing this extra service. Just an idea. I hope you like it. :) By the way, we have a online community with 3000 professional translators so it would be cool if we could collaborate somehow on this feature in the future :)

This looks like a great tool. Whilst YouTube viewers usually have their sound on for videos, on other social networks, studies have shown that a large percentage have their audio muted whilst watching/scrolling through videos on other networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So being able to add these captions will add a whole new dynamic. The only area I can see this being an issue is where the video has a background music/song, as this would cause the system to struggle to pick up the voice correctly and provide accurate captions. Overall, a very exciting product and I look forward to trying it out.

@productpearson That's spot on - the transcription works best when the voices are loud, clear, and ideally, isolated without background music.

Just joined the site and guys, I'm very VERY impressed! We work with a lot of clients in managing their social media and one problem they often face is creating fast social content. Normally we have templates in After Effects or Premiere Pro but THIS is killer. Excited to see how this grows. Would be interested to maybe speak to you directly as well as I run and we work with many brands and create their social content. Would be good to off-shoot them to your service somehow as well.
